Hi there! Happy Sunday to all the wonderful people out there. l know that Sunday is nothing to be happy about because work l school starts from Monday. However, Let me make the day a little better for you by talking about a special holiday beauty product from Too Faced that I have really liked and now want to share with you.

Description: I am talking about the Merry Kissmass Limited Edition Collection from Too Faced. You can find it at the Too Faced website for only $25. Have a very Merry Kissmas with four clutch-size tubes of our bestselling Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in original, chocolate and matte formulas. Melted Lipstick comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense color that lasts for hours. The collections includes deluxe sizes of our 2 bestselling Melted shades: Chihuahua and Fig PLUS a Melted Chocolate shade: Honey AND a mini Melted Matte: Lady Balls. Melted Chocolate is infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and a decadent chocolate scent. Each of the lipsticks are $21 at Sephora and c an be found for $21. have an issue with staying power or with it looking gross when it wears off. On me it gradually fades. However, I don’t know if that is the case when using the more bold shades. Melted Chihuahua is my go to everyday shade. I will be purchasing more shades on my next Sephora trip. I love this lipstick a lot. That says a lot for me considering I tire easily of any single lipstick shade or formula.

Ingredients: INGREDIENTS: Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dicalcium Phosphate, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Fragrance/Parfum, Silica Silylate, Benzyl Benzoate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Benzyl Alcohol, Colophonium, Methicone, Mica, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Silica, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Tin Oxide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Barium Sulfate (CI 77120).

Verdict: I really enjoy ties lipstick collection. The color choices are great You get a chocolate nude lipstick, a nude pinkish tone color, a light people color, and bright red no mate red lipstick. The lasting power is not amazing, but I don’t expect longevity with glossy products. The biggest con for me is how messy the applicator gets, which is not what I want to see on an over twenty dollars lipstick.  I was a bit worried at how the colors would look on my skin tone, but they all work really well!

Overall, this will a wonderful glam bag to have, give to someone, or even add it as a Christmas stocking stuffer.

Hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed writing it.

sephora2

Hi There! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your loved ones. I had a great time enjoying Thanksgiving turkey feast potluck with my family. The main fun came after the Thanksgiving holiday in form of Black Friday shopping. I had the chance to shop at Macy’s, The Limited, New York and Company, Sephora, and the of course, Mac Cosmetics. Over the next few days, I will publish my review on each of my haul away.

lhomme

Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Gift Set: I got this for my dad from the Sephora for $42. He absolutely love this fragrance. The gift set contain the classic L’Homme, Perfum Intense, and La Nuit De L’Homme. Infused with the force of attraction of a man with style and sensuality, the classic fresh, woody fragrance is effervescent with bright, sparkling notes of bergamot, ginger, and vetiver. A fragrance of contrasts it is a unique combination of luxury, art, and modernity that exudes a timeless elegance. Intensify the power of seduction. Perfum Intense, the new masculine addition from Yves Saint Laurent is a provocative blend of woody notes wrapped in a sensual suede accord. The magnetic power of L’Homme is now even more irresistible. Finally, La Nuit de L’Homme by Yves Saint Laurent tells a story of intensity, bold sensuality, and seduction that lies half-way between restraint and abandon. Bright, masculine freshness combines with sophistication and nonchalance to create a fresh, yet deep and mysterious scent with notes of cardamom, cedar, and coumarin — a structure of contrasting forces.

I got this a gift for my dad. My dad absolutely love these fragrances. Now, he can carry his favorite collection with him wherever he goes. I love the small of the classic perfum. I also loved La Nuit, as it smelled this is one of my favorite alongside Chanel Blue and Spicebomb. Unfortunately, this set is not available online, but I am so glad that I got it at store.

mini-kisses

Sephora Collection – The Mini Kisses: Kiss Me Balm Trio ($12): cute gift set with three different mini Kiss Me Balms. It contains three luscious colors that will make you swoon, including one color specifically created for a magical holiday season. Try them all, or gift them as the perfect stocking stuffers. The gift set contain Kiss Me Balms in Charming, Pink Bubblegum, Cotton Candy.

kisses

I got this for my sister. She loves the esos lip balm and I wanted to get a stocking staffer for her. I really like the size, colors, and feel of this lip balm. It will be easy to carry in her purse.  Its oily enough to keep her lips soft and smooth. She has used the other versions before. This is no EOS, and can’t replace that quality but you probably have to reapply it every few hours.

lipbalm

Rosebud Perfume Co. Minted Rose Lip Balm ($7): This lip balm was created especially for Sephora, this must-have lip balm calms and heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns. Easy-to-use and versatile, dab it on chapped lips, elbows, or knees to condition and relieve dryness.

lipbalm2

This is actually the 7th or 8th one I bought. In winter, my lips gets chapped all the time, and this lip balm is an absolute life saver for me. I gave to my family and they all love it as well. This is hands down the most moisturizing balm I’ve ever tried. I really enjoyed this lip balm. I used it everyday! The only thing I really did not enjoy was the fact that the lid simply would not come off sometimes! It was so annoying. I had to fight and wrestle my way into the lip balm goodness. Anyway, the lip balm went on smoothly and left my lips feeling lovely and soft. Definitely would recommend this product. Hopefully they do something about that pesky lid though!

dr-jart

Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer ($36): This is a hydration-replenishing formula to provide long-lasting moisture and brighten dull-looking skin. This lightweight, refreshing moisturizer features a special emulsion system with droplets packed full of brightening and nourishing ingredients. The innovative formula bursts into tiny water droplets when applied—providing instant hydration and brightening dull, lackluster skin. Great for all skin types, it relieves dry, sensitive skin, revitalizes, and prevents visible signs of aging with concentrated antioxidants for a healthier-looking complexion. This moisturizer is parabens, sulfates, and phthalates free.

jart

I received this as a sample. It comes out gel-like and melts into your skin as if you’ve applied water and sinks into the skin very quickly without leaving a sticky mess. However, I only used it twice. I will definitely update and let you know if I see any issue with is moisturizer.

nars

Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Playpen (Coral Pink- $26): This is a long-lasting lip color with a smooth, semi-matte finish that provides ultimate hydration. Velvet lip glide is soft, yet strong. Effortless and intense. Polished and provocative. It encourages you not to compromise. Glide on strength. The finish is semi-matte, long-lasting, and non-drying for luscious, vibrant lips. Water lily flowers and white tea extract are infused into this hybrid lip glide for antioxidant protection and ultimate hydration.

I received this as a sample I can’t stop using it. I received the sample in Playpen and the color is absolutely to die for. One thing however that I am not a fan of is that it does not dry completely. It doesn’t stay long like Kat Von D, but it is also does not over dry your lips. I am not sure if I am going to pay the full price for this item.

Did you do your Black Friday shopping? What did you get and what products would you recommend? Hope you enjoy this post as much as I writing about it.

Hi There! Hope you are continuing to have a wonderful weekend. We are getting so close. There’s only 5 day till Black Friday and 35 days till Christmas. Aren’t you excited? I know I am.  That’s why, I want to bring to review of my favorite eye shadow palette. Yes, I am talking about my favorite Naked Palettes from Urban Decay.

naked4

Description: I love each of these palettes and I will describes each of the to them to you so that you can decide which one is best for you. You can also get all four them to complete your collection.

nakedpaletteud_nakedpaletteswatches_naked

Naked Palette – This original palette is a revolutionary, neutral eye palette, featuring 12 universally flattering bronze-hued shadows for a wide array of looks. It is loaded with 12 bronze-hued shadows in an insane range of finishes only Urban Decay could dream up—including matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle, Naked takes neutral eye color to a new level. From the palest champagne to the grittiest gunmetal, it’s everything you need to let eyes go laid-back, beachy vibe, or black-tie drama.

nakedpalette2ud_nakedpaletteswatches_naked2

Naked2 Palette – This is an eye palette, featuring 12 taupe-hued neutrals in a wide range of finishes. Following the release of Urban Decay’s Naked—the original bronze-hued palette that revolutionized neutrals, Urban Decay created Naked2. From luminous shades with shimmer and sparkle to the smoothest mattes imaginable, Naked2 is packed with 12 always vibrant, taupe-hued neutrals—including a gorgeous grayish brown, a glittery copper, and Urban Decay’s blackest black. Expand your Naked range to create even more sultry neutral looks, smoky dramatic looks, and everything in between.

nakedpalette3naked3swatch

Naked3 Palette – This 3rd edition of the naked palette in an exclusive palette with 12, rose-hued neutral eye shades in every finish. Naked3 features a dozen exclusive shades for endless eye looks. Experiment with these 12 gorgeous, rose-hued neutrals—from the palest, shimmery pink to a deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter. This palette features ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls, and glimmering metallics. For easy application, the mirrored case includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free, double-ended Shadow/Blending Brush.

smokeypalettesmokeyswatch

Naked Smokey Palette – Last but not least is the smokey version of the palette, featuring nine shades and three exclusives from past palettes. Urban Decay packed this palette with a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals. Experiment with warm bronzes, dimensional grays, rich browns, gorgeous taupes, and a deep black. When it comes to finishes, Naked Smoky has it all—from mattes and satins to shades with sparkle.

What Else You Need to Know: For easy application, the mirrored case includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free, double-ended Shadow/Blending Brush. The magnetic closure on the case prevents shadow mishaps in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get Naked whenever the urge strikes.

Verdict: Naked palettes are great. In the original palette, there is a great mix of matte and shimmer shades that are good for a day or night look. Shadows go on smooth and with the primer potion, do not budge. If you’re looking for one palette for all your needs, definitely go with the Naked palette. The second palette is a really nice palette to have around, it has a good range of colors that can help with a variety of looks and there something about naked palettes that just makes you want to have it. if you’re on a budget and want to splurge on one expensive product, i would maybe look for something a big more spectacular, but if you just want to add to your collection or try a dependable set of bronze-time shadows, this is for you. The 3rd palette also good but I use it the least. Some of the colors in this palette when you blend them end up looking like just one color on your eyelids. However, this is a good palette if you’re looking for an everyday cute makeup look that you can wear for school. Finally, the smokey palette is a very versatile palette that I really love. My final verdict, these are great palettes to have and are worth every penny.

naked2

You can get each of these palettes for $54 each at Sephora. You can get the colors you want or all of them. Now, you can get an exclusive collection of the four Naked palettes, Naked & Naked2 Basics, Naked Flushed (pink and peach),  24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil in Naked and Rush, Naked Ultra Nourishing lipgloss in Naked and Conspiracy, and Vice Lipsticks in Naked and Backtalk. You can get this beautiful collection at Urban Decay for $300 as Naked Vault Vol III.

Let me know what is your favorite Naked palette from Urban Decay or if you love all of them. Hope you enjoy this as much as I like writing this post.

mac2 mac4

Verdict: What can I say about this product. I absolutely love the colors. I have a weakness for red and plum colors and I get both in this kit. The colors are long-lasting and looks great on olive/tan or even darker skin tone. The matte colors can be little drying on the lips can easily be corrected with a little bit of a primer or chapstick underneath. I would highly recommend this kit to everyone. If you prefer a more pink tone then check out the Nutcracker Sweet Pink Lipstick Kit (See picture below).

Massage a generous amount of the mask onto clean, dry skin until the gel turns white, then leave on for 60 seconds and rinse. The mask is gentle enough for daily use.

philosophy3

My Verdict: It’s gentle. I love the smell of this cleanser! Leaves my skin feeling soft. Usually, I have to be very careful about the cleanser because it can leave my skin feeling dry. I did not have any issue with this one. Overall, it works very well for combination skin. As for the moisturizer, it doesn’t look oily under makeup, and hydrates nicely. However without the makeup it can leave your skin a little greasy. I usually use it more during fall and winter when my skin is extra dry from the whether. However, I would not pay for the full price of the moisturizer though. I would especially not recommend this moisturizing to those with oily skin. Finally, the mask is quick, easy and truly deep cleans my face. It also leaves my skin soft and moisturized. You don’t have to use too much of the product a little goes a long way. Overall, my verdict is that this a great gift for someone who does not have oily skin. I like the cleanser and absolutely love the mask. I use the moisturizer during fall and winter when my skin is drier than normal.

Please let me know what you guys think about the product, and if you would recommend this to your friends. Hope you enjoy this blog as much as I love writing it.

Buxom Frozen Assets 8-piece Mini Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick Collection


buxom6

Hi There! Today, I will give you my recommendation for another Christmas gift idea for your favorite gal out there. It’s the Buxom Frozen Asset Mini Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick Collection from Sephora. It costs $39.

buxom

Description: This a Sephora-exclusive, limited-edition, 8-piece collection of Buxom’s bestselling Mini Big & Sexy Bold Lipsticks in satin and matte finishes. The collection include  includes a range of nude to red shades in moisturizing matte and satin finishes in a lightweight, gel formula. Each shade delivers piercingly vivid, one-stroke color to shamelessly stand out. The collection contain 4 satin and 4 moisturizing matte lipsticks. The four satin lipsticks include: Mini Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Rebel Rose (satin rosy pink), Graphic Grape (satin deep purple), Forbidden Berry (satin deep pink), Fuchsia Fetish (satin hot pink). The four matte lipstick collections include: Mini Big & Sexy Bold Gel Matte Lipstick in Racy Reveal (matte warm light pink), Sinful Cinnamon (matte cinnamon brown), Ultraviolet (matte bright violet), Ruby Temptress (matte brick red).

buxom7

Verdict: This collection is  super hydrating and doesn’t dry my lips out at all. The matte collection  are not  complete matte, but more like a semi matte. It feels creamy on the lips, but it doesn’t look or feel thick. It feels more like a light/thin formula and it’s very pigmented. It’s also long lasting. Sinful Cinnamon is  my perfect everyday go-to shade. I wear it with anything and it looks gorgeous. The only thing I don’t like is that they’re a bit drying once you’ve had them on for a while but that’s not unexpected from matte collection. My final verdict, I will give this collection 4 stars. The collection has beautiful colors. In order to counteract the drying effect I use a lip primer that moisturize my lips. I often use a very thin layer of Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask that completely counteracts any drying affects and is my go to lip moisturizer.  It’s available at Sephora for $26. You can also use your favorite lip primer or thin layer of chapstick as a base.

Marc Jacobs – Up All Night Five-Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection


s1838127-main-zoom

Hi There! Now that Christmas is starting to slowly lurk behind us I am going to recommend some Christmas gift ideas in the next several weeks. Today, I am going to recommend another great item for Christmas gift. It is the limited edition Up All Night Five-Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection ($49) from Marc Jacobs and can be found at Sephora. Let’s break down this small but powerful gift set.

p411245-av-03-zoom

Description: This is a Marc Jacobs Holiday collection and is all about last night, containing Marc Jacobs’ revolutionary 10-hour wear lipstick that covers your lips in buttery, creamy vibrant pigment in one sensual swipe. Experience unprecedented color payoff from their concentrated color-boost pigments that are triple-milled and steeped in hydrating ingredients, to give your lips ultimate long-lasting color and moisture for a plumped appearance that lasts. These five, rich Le Marc Lip Crème shades are tucked away into a Marc Jacobs metallic, hot pink vegan patent leather pouch. Zipped with a black swinging tassel, this pouch is so elegant, it could double as an evening bag. The collection contains bestselling nudes, reds, and a plum. The lipsticks are formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

p411245-av-02-zoom

Verdict: These lipsticks are very moisturizing and long wearing. I already have the full size of Slow Burn which I have officially deemed as my perfect nude.  I like Oh Miley because of classic reds. Miss Scarlet is a deep vampy red, really nice for a bold lip. Scandal is a bit darker than I wanted but still a nice purple color. The case is cute, and the inner liner can be pulled out so you can use the clutch for something else. Really happy with this purchase. It is perfect for my make up bag and the colors are spot on for the fall/winter season. I am not a big fan of  matte lipsticks. These lipsticks are quite buttery. long lasting, and hydrating – the best alternative there is to matte. I also have last year’s Marc Jacobs lipstick set in the black patent leather bag. I will continue to buy his mini lipstick sets as long as he continues to make them. My final verdict, this is a great gift for Christmas or just to indulge yourself.
